  • [By Logan Wallace]

    FLIR Systems (NASDAQ:FLIR) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “FLIR Systems gross margins remain vulnerable to a host of factors, including product mix changes and manufacturing cost absorption. Also, high manufacturing cost absorption is likely to restrict the company’s growth. Moreover, factors like imposition of governmental controls and restrictions on export of technology remain concerns. Poor economic conditions across FLIR Systems’ key operating regions may hamper capital investment and consumer spending, thereby weighing on the company’s profitability. Moreover, the company’s lead time for licensing the orders have increased, resulting in a lengthy order acceptance period, which is likely to hurt the top line. However, it enjoys a strong top-line growth, driven by impressive performance across most of its segments. In the past six months, FLIR Systems’ shares have outperformed compared with the industry average.”

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now

General Electric was blasted on Wednesday by workers, retirees and shareholders bemoaning the downfall of the company they love.

At its annual meeting, GE (GE) got an earful from employees and investors who pleaded with management to right the ship after a disastrous year.

“I believe it was arrogance and a series of bad business decisions,” former employee Bill Freeda said. “Our board of directors clearly has been AWOL.”

Another shareholder said: “GE, which was once one of the preeminent companies in the world the bluest of blue chips is now an embarrassment.”

The past 12 months has been one of the darkest periods in GE’s 126-year history. A cash crisis, brought on by years of bad deal-making, forced GE to cut its dividend in half and lay off thousands of workers. GE’s stock price has crashed by 50%, and calls to kick it out of the Dow have grown louder.

Despite the deep criticism of past and current GE leaders, the company’s nominees to the board were all elected on Wednesday. None of the shareholder proposals calling for reform were adopted, though one pushing for splitting the CEO and chairman roles received strong support.

Top 10 Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now: Thor Industries Inc.(THO)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Asit Sharma]

    Winnebago’s total backlog increased by 36% against the comparable prior year quarter, to $193.1 million. Competitor Thor Industries’ (NYSE:THO) quarterly earnings, reported earlier this month, revealed a backlog reduction of 18%. Although Thor’s management presented a credible argumentthat the organization’s backlog reduction is due to increased production capability, its shareholders nonetheless have worried over demand trends. Winnebago’s own backlog growth provides a more positive data point for those taking stock of the larger RV industry.

  • [By Daniel Miller]

    Another metric that bodes well for Winnebago is its total backlog; this increased by a healthy 36% compared to the prior year, to $193.1 million. That 36% increase looks even better when you consider that competitor Thor Industries (NYSE:THO) reported an 18% decline in its backlog during its recent quarterly conference call — although Thor Industries offered an explanation for the reduction.

    China’s President Xi Jinping did his part to support the bull market in stocks via a conciliatory trade speech on Monday night, and now embattled Facebook (FB)  founder Mark Zuckerberg has to follow course. By now, seemingly ever pundit and journalist has weighed in how the camera-averse Zuckerberg will perform over the next two days in front of savage lawmakers. So there isn’t much new to add until we watch him sit down and do battle. But one gets the sense that lawmakers won’t have any clue what to truly ask Zuck in the attempt to send his stock price down the tubes again (because they would secretly love nothing better than to hit Zuck in his digital wallet, naturally). Sure, they may get under his notoriously thin skin, but investors worried about a full-on stock price rout should rest somewhat easy. The Facebooks evolution that is well underway, and which is being accelerated post the Cambridge Analytica debacle, will over time erode the company’s highly lucrative business model. You probably won’t see any evidence of the derision in the first-quarter results or perhaps even the rest of 2018. It’s happening as we speak though, and should be something Zuck reflects in 2019 profit guidance (which should be issued) at some point later this year. In the meantime, enjoy the great theater and tread easily with Facebook’s stock off the March mini-rally. Better trades into this spectacle if you haven’t put them on already: big data business plays such as Dropbox (DBX) , Salesforce (CRM) , and Action Alerts PLUS holdings Microsoft (MSFT) and Nvidia (NVDA) .

Top 10 Stocks To Watch For 2019: eBay Inc.(EBAY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Danny Vena]

    Going into PayPal’s (NASDAQ:PYPL) first-quarter financial report, investors were still digesting the announcement made in February by eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY). The company revealed that it had decided to process its own payments as soon as allowable under its separation agreement with PayPal. The news sent PayPal’s shares falling by as much as 10%, while eBay climbed 15%. As I pointed out at the time, many investors didn’t understand the context of this announcement, and that it wasn’t unexpected — or even that big of a deal.

  • [By Steve Symington, Jeremy Bowman, and Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    Demitri Kalogeropoulos (eBay): eBay’s business lacks a head-turning sales growth pace, but it makes up for that weakness with impressive finances. The e-commerce platform kicked off fiscal 2018 with a 7% revenue boost as its base of active shoppers rose by 4%. And, while that’s far from Shopify’s 68% revenue increase, eBay’s steadier sales base generated impressive earnings and cash flow. Operating profits amounted to 23% of sales, compared to between 2% and 4% for integrated e-commerce retailers like Amazon and Walmart. eBay routinely converts a large portion of its sales into free cash, which gives management ample resources to direct toward improving the customer shopping experience and elevating the brand.

    State of Wisconsin Investment Board increased its holdings in eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) by 5.4% during the first quarter, according to its most recent 13F filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

    Oil prices are at levels we haven’t seen in years. U.S. crude topped $70 for the first since 2014, as U.S. President Donald Trump appeared increasingly likely to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal and reinforce sanctions on Tehran. In addition, OPEC has announced plans to bolster prices and cap production. For oil investors, Money MorningGlobal Energy Strategist Dr. Kent Moors says it’s time to buckle up. According to Moors, revoking the Iran deal would cause “price chaos” around the globe. And that’s right as driving season starts in the United States. Here’s more on the coming chaos for oil. In deal news, Blackstone Group (NYSE: BX) announced it will purchase Gramercy Property Trust (NYSE: GPT) for $7.6 billion in cash. Grammercy manages commercial real estate. While this may seem like a boring deal, Blackstone is buying a business that churns out cold hard cash for its investors. We want to keep this deal on your radar, because there are many other deals like this coming down the pipeline. We’re going to be discussing one of the best real estate opportunities available very soon – so keep an eye out for updates.
